Host A Next Move Intern
Interested in Hosting an Intern?
The Next Move Internship Program works with the local community to design meaningful positions for juniors and seniors in Tacoma Public Schools in order to provide each a preview of their professional future. By working alongside employees in a specific industry, students are able to learn what skills and expertise is needed to be successful in their chosen career field. Internship experiences provide students the opportunity to make informed decisions about their future.
After participating in Intro to Internship, a preparatory course where students explore their career interests and build their professional skills, students are invited to participate in a 90-hour, unpaid internship experience in the community, where they can continue to build their skills and explore their interests. Students typically intern 4-8 hours per week at their site and are supported throughout the entire experience by their Next Move Coach.
